Bluebrain is a band from DC who have just released an album that can only be listened to inside the Mall – a stretch of park located in downtown Washington. The album, entitled, The National Mall, has been released as an app for the iPhone. The music within the app will play as the user interacts with zones tagged inside the Mall. Each user’s listening experience will be unique, as different paths through the zones will reveal a specific mix of rhythms and instrumentation.
The promo video above sets a nice mood for the experience, and I must say I’m quite captivated by the concept of mixing music and real-world environments – I only wish there were multiple cities/locations to enjoy the album.
Much more to read and see at the band’s label, Lujo Records.
